Here’s what you need to know to ensure a smooth and legal transaction:
- Title Transfer: The most important step in Texas is transferring the vehicle's title. Be sure the title is in your name and properly filled out. If the title is missing, apply for a duplicate from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV). Don’t stress, we’ll take care of it.
- License Plates: In Texas, license plates stay with the vehicle after sale, except for personalized plates, which you may keep.
- Notice of Vehicle Transfer: After selling, it's important to file a Vehicle Transfer Notification with the TxDMV.
- Lien Release: If there's a lien on the car, ensure it's properly released before the sale
- Bill of Sale: While not mandatory in Texas, a bill of sale provides extra legal protection and clarity. It's a good idea to include an "as-is" clause.
